Three months ago we reported that Slackware Linux was introducing Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) into its testing branch. The PAM libraries are now available to users of Slackware's Current branch. People adopting the PAM authentication technology should make a few adjustments to their systems. "After three months in /testing, the PAM merge into the main tree is now complete. When updating, be sure to install the new pam, cracklib, and libpwquality packages or you may find yourself locked out of your machine. Otherwise, these changes should be completely transparent and you shouldn't
notice any obvious operational differences. Be careful if you make any changes in /etc/pam.d/ - leaving an extra console logged in while testing PAM config changes is a recommended standard procedure." Further details can be found in the Slackware changelog.
